WCLC Vault Breaker VLT Makes Another Millionaire

Saskatoon man wins $1.14M Vault Breaker Jackpot.

What’s it like to go from week-to-week pay cheques to instant millionaire? That’s a question every slot machine fan from Nunavut to New Guinea has asked themselves. We dream about it all the time. But for one very lucky Saskatoon man, it’s not longer a dream. It’s a heart pounding, life altering reality.

Saskatoon Man Celebrates $1.14M Vault Breaker Jackpot Win

That man is Kevin Olsen, an average working Joe from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. His life is anything but average now after collecting a little more than one million dollars on the push of a button. That button just happened to be connected to the Western Canadian Lottery Corporation‘s (WCLC) immensely popular VLT jackpot game, Vault Breaker.

Olsen Scoops $1.14M Vault Breaker Jackpot

The Saskatoon man’s epic windfall is a story for the ages. Mr. Olsen was winding down at the Coachman Beverage Room in Market Mall on the evening of Sunday, June 9. He was seated in front of one of the province’s relatively new Vault Breaker video lottery terminals, spinning the reels for small increments when the most incredible thing happened.

Kevin Olsen unleashed the game’s 7-figure grand jackpot! In the blink of an eye, he was $1,149,131.61 richer.

“I was in total disbelief!” Olsen told WCLC media reps when he arrived to collect his winnings and take his obligatory photo with the cardboard cheque.

“I called my sister and told her I won $1.14 million,” Olsen recanted the story of that memorable evening. “She couldn’t believe it. I guess the good news travelled fast because soon the rest of my family was at the Coachman celebrating with me.”

No doubt it was a night the Olsen family and everyone at the Coachman that night will remember for a long, long time to come.

When asked what he planned to do with his new found wealth, Kevin had a few ideas. “I’m going to pay some bills and try to invest the majority of it”, he said. Mr. Olsen won’t be quitting his day job just yet, but he does believe “retirement might actually be in sight” thanks to his fortuitous win.

“I’ll keep working for now, but maybe not quite as hard,” he quipped.

Vault Breaker VLT Pays $7.1M in 2 Years

The Vault Breaker video lottery terminal has become quite popular since the WCLC introduced it in 2017. It is limited to Saskatchewan, with approximately 4,200 networked machines dotting the provincial map. The game’s jackpot seeds at $500,000 each time it’s won, and grows from there each time it’s played, until another lucky winner strikes the big prize.

The Vault Breaker Jackpot comes in three levels – Mini, Major and Grand. Each is guaranteed to strike by the time it reaches its maximum level. The Mini pays anywhere from $100 to a max of $500. The Major will pay $1,000 to a max of $5,000. The Grand starts at $500k and is guaranteed to strike before exceeding its maximum payout of $1,500,000.

To date, 8 players have triggered the Grand Jackpot, with cumulative prizes totaling more than $7.1 million to date. Vault Breaker’s largest payout was its first grand release of $1,224,014.81, awarded to Judith Kaprinka in December 2017. Olsen’s win last weekend resets the jackpot back to $500k.
